Expert 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Eifert's health is a big concern, but he should have the opportunity to far exceed his ADP if he can stay on the field all season. Eifert has touchdown upside, a quality quarterback throwing to him, a developing rapport with that quarterback, and a cast of surrounding pass-catchers that's uninspiring outside of D.J. Chark. Eifert is worth a dart throw in the later rounds of deeper leagues. 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Jags will have to throw a ton and Minshew Magic is a little better than advertised. If Eifert can stay healthy, he's a top-20 asset. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 McDonald has always felt like he could be a breakout candidate one year, but those feelings are gone by this point. Although he'll return with the Steelers, Eric Ebron should see the primary snaps from the tight end position, making McDonald an afterthought in fantasy. Either way, the oft-injured McDonald has cleared 391 receiving yards and 38 catches just once in his career, and is no longer a fantasy option, even in deeper leagues.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We've seen tight ends have success in Jay Gruden's offense and Eifert does have one year of experience in his offense, dating all the way back to 2013. He's on his third straight one-year deal, as no team wants to commit to him. The Jaguars will be racking up the pass attempts, and they did just lose Josh Oliver for the season. It's possible Eifert has streamable weeks, but he's not in the every-week consideration. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
 McDonald was one of my favorite breakout candidates last season but as soon as Ben Roethlisberger went down, that dream went down the toilet. Now the Steelers have added Eric Ebron who looks to be the starter as of now. McDonald will be a decent streaming option, but unless anything happens to Ebron, he should remain on your waiver wire.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
When looking for tight ends for fantasy football, you're either betting on pure target volume or touchdown upside. There are very few tight ends in the NFL that see enough targets to be fantasy relevant on that alone, so that leaves a lot where you're simply banking on TD production. This season, Eifert's as solid of a bet as any tight end to reel in 5 to 7 touchdowns. He's a huge presence in the red zone and he proved that he can stay healthy last season. Eifert's a solid flyer within the top-20 tight ends. The fact that he's going as TE41 currently is ridiculous. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Tyler Eifert sneakily managed to play 16 games for the first time in his career, finishing as the TE20, and somehow nobody noticed! He now moves to the tight end dead zone in Jacksonville and while I'm a big Eifert fan from way back, it's so hard to see him making anything happen behind the four Jags receivers and their two RBs that he should remain off your radar.After his 2018 breakout, Vance McDonald tumbled back to earth last season. Despite a very generous schedule, he failed to pass forty yards in a single game and looks entirely washed as a 30-year-old tight end who now sits behind Eric Ebron on the depth chart.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
The 2019 Jaguars targeted TEs on just 11% of pass attempts, 4th lowest rate in the league. New OC Jay Gruden's 1st 5 Washington offenses all topped 23%. Last year's hit 15.2%. @SchaufDS
